on the debt ceiling increase. but there is no guarantee that they're going to extend similar cooperation on other parts of the agenda. we have to see whether or not partisan warfare actually escalates later in the year or whether we have turned a corner and the president has found a different way of dealing with republicans that's more effective. >> fascinating weekend, john. i think we have some live pictures this morning of the president going to the national prayer breakfast in washington. the president and the first lady at the national cathedral. i think in the motorcade also spotted valerie jarrett, jack lew and some others as well. thanks, john. >>> meanwhile, what's coming up tonight on "fast?" >> we'll talk about the natural gas and how it can be converted to other things. and there will be the first nat gas to diesel plant and what that can mean in future. >> you're fired up into. a lot of news. >> i am. >> have a good day. >>> in the meantime, here's what you missed earlier on this morning. >> welcome to hour three of "squawk on the street." here's what's happening so far. >>
to the constituency. if they wanted to make sure that i would vote for this debt ceiling increase. they could atacht rains act to it. which my predecessor got passed through the house. but stick that and send to the senate and say it's a reasonable proposal. it's going help the economy. >> we need wrap up. we can take a couple of more questions. >> following on that. -- from the house and senate this spring. will you seek out the funding of planned parenthood. >> that will will be in the appropriations process. there have been two bills introdisused by the house and there's an effort to -- mike the governor of indiana and so there will be an't cod effort. you would think out of 3.7 trillion budget we could find somewhere to cut and certainly that's one good place to start. >> if any finalized budget will you support it or vote against it. with the budget there's two things going on. one is the budget doesn't specify much of anything other than numbers on the page. then we go through various appropriations bills. the problem we had is appropriations bill haven't come out of the committee and haven't
a budget. the house has acted. the president says he wants the debt ceiling increase. hopefully the majority has decided to pass a budget. the new budget chairman, senator murray, said yesterday that her committee will draft a budget. now let's let the senate produce a budget. let's have a budget drawn up. let's have a budget debated. let's figure out what our plans are. budgets lay out plans and we'll see if a budget that a majority in the senate would vote for will pass the straight-face test with the american people. we'll see if this is just another budget that says, okay, here's the amount of money we'd like to spend. it has no relationship to the amount of money we have. let's let that be our budget. the people -- people will no longer tolerate, i'm convinced, the amount of debt and taxes that the spending plan would require. but for them to really think about that, they have to have a spending plan, and i am grateful that the house passed legislation that says we have to have that -- that plan. when the majority in the senate, democrats in the senate have a budget, we'll

a vote to increase the debt ceiling is unnecessary. it has served the purpose. back in 1939 that was enacted into law to try to create some flexibility so that the nation could obtain more favorable financing so we go from time to time, and you make increases in the debt ceiling to accommodate the need to borrow money to pay for the spending that you've already authorized, but now that is being used as a political weapon. one of my colleagues said that they've weaponized the statute, and using it for politics and it is hurting our fiscal situation. it's hurting our economy and we simply do not need to allow one side to use it to extract spending cuts. ooh really hurting our economy. >> congressman, we'll have to leave it there. georgia democrat hank johnson. thank you. >> thank you. >> it's a problem that affects a lot of people in america, obesity, but there's one segment of the population where it's reaching epidemic proportions, but an online movement has started to help fight the crisis. i'll talk to one of the founders of a really cool group. you're watching msnbc. ♪
the debt ceiling increase. just as it would be to raise the debt ceiling without any meaningful cuts, just as senator phil graham got back in 1985 i believe it was, with graham-rudman -- graham rudman and so many of the debt increases that accompanied that was part of the deal with restrictions on spending. there are so many things going on in the world today that are just staggering. we know we have secretary of state, hillary clinton, testifying today. one report here today says that secretary clinton quickly interrupted one senator that contradict him and stress that she did not see request for additional security to protect the benghazi mission. extremely unfortunate. that people in our state department committed to helping to this country would make cries for help over a period of months, over a period of years, even going back to when ambassador rice was with the state department, and people were killed an american embassy request had been made for extra security that went unheeded. here it came again and apparently there were a number of people that made requests, including one of t
. there are no spending cuts as part of this. there are a number of republicans who want to increase the debt ceiling only at the congress passes a corresponding number of spending cuts. we have to watch this very closely and make sure it does reach that threshold. it is not necessarily 218. if everyone votes, it will be. if it does pass into the senate, harry reid says they will take it up and they will likely pass it as well. you have to get through this first. we will update you when and if we get there. melissa: another short-term solution. thank you so much. what did the administration know and when? hillary clinton in the hot seat today over the benghazi attack. lou dobbs will weigh in on that. lori: a mixed picture. we are back after this. ♪ >> at 21 minutes past the hour, i am patty and brown with your fox news minute. then yahoo! called early elections three months ago expecting and easy victory. the leader must now build a coalition after a strong showing by a new party. he is expected to keep his job. much of the u.s. experiencing the coldest temperature and two years. four deaths are blamed
-term increase in the debt ceiling, but how can we tackle ♪ gerri: retreating or regrouping? house republicans putting to a vote raising the debt ceiling for three months, but are thy backing off of their demands for spending cuts in exchange for raising the debt limit? with more on this, grover norquist, president for americans for tax reform. great to have you here. other republicans doing the right thing? >> i think so. there are three tools the republicans have to force obama to focus on spending, which she does not want to do it and will do unless forced. first is the sequester which starts march 1st or 2nd. that is a hundred billion dollars per year. that is the real cut in spending that will happen. the other one is the continuing resolution which starts march 4/7. we have a continuing resolution. they are the republicans that can put obama on a very short leash and only give him a continuing resolution for a week for two or three. cut the spending each time. those are two very powerful mechanisms. gerri: you don't in addition of the purse strings on the debt ceiling to use that at the
who says maybe what we should do is increase the debt ceiling for the short-term? >> no, actually, i think that's a bad approach. because we just lurch from crisis to crisis. the paul ryan budget that the house passed with basically every single republican except for, i think, two, that would require in its own terms an increase in the debt ceiling of $1.5 trillion in two years. the budget they voted for requires the debt ceiling to be raised. and now when the time comes to avoid default, they don't want to do it. but i think what you're seeing is speaker boehner knows this isn't a viable tactic. i think mr. ryan knows it's not a viable tactic. but there's a lot in the republican conference that continue to see this doomsday kind of approach as a viable approach. and i think that cooler heads are starting to prevail on the republican side. and that's a good thing. >> and you are part of this no labels coalition wanting to reach across the aisle. but let me read to you what david brooks wrote. polarization is too deep, special interests are too strong. the negotiators are too rusty. r

will increase the debt ceiling for a period of three months and in that timeframe, the congress has to come up with a budget and that is a win from the democrats standpoint, but they do not like the idea of increasing the debt limit in increments. the question is, if it gets passed will it force both sides to come to the table on spending cuts within a matter of months when they take on the issue on of the budget and then of course, the sequester. that is the big question mark, you heard nancy pelosi saying she does not like the idea and i have spoke to republicans that do not like the idea of withholding their pay if they do not get a budget passed. peter king of new york said it's like bribery. so, while aides on the hill are saying they feel confident that this package package will make it through both chambers, we've to wait to see how it plays out. it's a victory on the democrat's standpoint, because you see a raise without dollar for dollar spending cuts. >> hang in a minute, i want to bring in dave, a political reporter, and msnbc. contributor. will the president pass this, with no mess

go over the debt ceiling, we do not increase the debt ceiling, republicans will not win the debate. they will argue they are not increasing it because they do not want to control spending but they will not win the debate. what will happen is the white house will pay with cash flow of the interest on the debt. the debt will not be called. what they might not pay our social security checks. the moment the american citizen figures out they may not go out, the game is over. tenfold. because believe me, though congress can stand up to the senior lobby. so that is not a legitimate process to take the debt ceiling as the hostage. the appropriate goal, whether the debate should occur. the president gets to talk about the faults. -- defaults. he gets to talk about social security. we should be talking about spending. spending restraints. where is the logical place to do this? the logical place is on the sequestered. that is where the next pressure point should be. we should have the debate over how much spending should be restrained and how it should be restrained. the sequester is a 1.2 tr
